Leicester City (17 wins, 10 losses, 8 draws) finished the weekend in fourth place on the EPL table, one point ahead of Manchester United, but with the Red Devils yet to play on Monday. Sheffield United (14 wins, 9 losses, 12 draws) are five points behind the Foxes after stunning Chelsea 3-0 on Saturday, leaving the Blues just one point up on Leicester for third place.
Fifth won’t be enough for the Champions League this year, now that Manchester City’s two-year ban has been overturned, but the Blades can still sneak in if they continue their current form. They certainly can’t afford a repeat of their Jekyll-and-Hyde performance when Leicester City visited Bramall Lane way back in August; the Foxes dominated early and won 2-1 on a brilliant 70th-minute strike by Harvey Barnes.
